The Eiffel Tower views, the indulgent French pastries, the quaint homes lining cobblestone streets — it’s hard not to have a magical time on a trip to Paris. But if you’re traveling from afar and hoping to return home with truly unforgettable memories of the City of Light, a stay in an actual Parisian palace may be up your alley. And if you book now through Skylark, you can snag some extra perks throughout your stay.

The elegant Shangri-La Hotel on the quieter west side of Paris was originally built in the late 1800s as a glitzy home for Prince Roland Bonaparte, the grand-nephew of Napoleon. Re-opened as a hotel in 2010, it now boasts an indoor pool (a space that was once a stable for Prince Roland’s horses), restored grand salons, and 101 spacious-yet-cozy guest rooms. The former royal residence sits directly across the Seine from the Eiffel Tower, meaning half of the rooms feature picturesque, close-up views of the monument that may or may not have been the motivation behind your whole trip. If that doesn’t strike your fancy, maybe the quick 15-minute taxi ride to the Louvre will.

The location and palace interior alone are enough to make any traveler swoon — but it’s the special gifts and services guests can access through Skylark that really takes a Shangri-La stay into luxury territory. Skylark perks at the hotel include a $100 food and beverage credit, daily breakfast for two, complimentary one-way airport transfer (for guests staying in suites), and more. In total, Shangri-La guests will receive more than $385 worth of perks when they use Skylark to reserve their room. And to stay in a palace that once housed a French prince, we’d say it’s a pretty royal deal!
